The Lord of the Rings Online allows players to forge heroic legacies in the War for Middle-Earth, experience an evolving persistent recreation of Tolkien's fantasy realm where you can establish unique reputations, discover and wield legendary weapons in strategic battles, while adventuring solo or in Fellowships.

The Lord of the Rings Online is the ultimate interactive adventure. This massively multiplayer online role-playing game delivers an interactive experience brimming with life and filled with the familiar people, places and monsters from the most beloved fantasy of all time. From the picturesque surroundings of the Shire to Moria, the most fearsome underground realm ever imagined, players will experience the world of Middle-earth as never before.

Turbine kicks off the 2nd anniversary celebration for its massively multiplayer online game The Lord of the Rings Online with a special limited-time anniversary pricing promotion and various in-game anniversary activities. The LOTRO Anniversary celebration will run from April 24, 2009 to June 30, 2009.

“It’s been another incredible year for LOTRO and Turbine,” said Jeffrey Steefel, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online™. “Being named both 2008 MMO of the Year and Best Expansion of 2008, coupled with the overwhelmingly positive response to the game from fans, has firmly cemented LOTRO as one of the world’s premier online entertainment experiences. Our anniversary is a chance for us to celebrate with our past and present players and enjoy everything that is special about Middle-earth and thank them for their wonderful support with some special subscription options.”

The Lord of the Rings Online Second Anniversary Celebration includes:

  • Anniversary Pricing Plans: From April 24th through June 30th, Turbine is offering special anniversary pricing plans. Players can choose any multi-month plan (90 days or longer) and lock in a monthly price of $9.99 for as long as they maintain the new subscription plan. For current subscribers, the anniversary price plan takes effect at the expiration of their current subscription. For new players, it takes effect at the expiration of the free 30 days of game time that is included in their purchase of The Lord of the Rings Online
  • In-Game Celebration:
    • During the anniversary celebration, monsters throughout Middle-earth will drop rare items when defeated. Players can exchange these rare items for a special gift box that will reward them with a variety of in-game items to aid them in their adventures in Middle-earth.
